The Emo Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank all those who attended, supported, and donated to their annual fall tea which was held last Friday.

The door prize, which was donated by Cloverleaf Store, was won by Marlene Tiboni of Rainy River.

Two fall wreaths, donated by Cindy Judson, were won by Gladys Jolicoeur of Stratton and Mona Hartnell of Fort Frances.

The winner of a beautiful quilt made and donated by Cabin Country Quilters Guild will be drawn at the “Strawberry Social” which will be held on June 19, 2020.

Tickets for the quilt draw are still available and are only $2 each.

Once again, thanks to everyone for supporting the work of our auxiliary in our community.
